Tombstone Tuesday: More Traffords

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

Last week I posted photos of Abraham Trafford’s and Basilea Harmer’s tombstones from the Old Rumson Burying Ground in Monmouth County, New Jersey. As it turns out, five of their children are buried in the same cemetery. I found photos of the tombstones for four of them on the USGenWeb site for Monmouth County.
